THE DISPENSABLE NATION American Foreign Policy in Retreat

by | Read by Stephen Hoye

Contemporary Culture • 11.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2013

The author is a former Obama administration official who worked closely with Hillary Clinton on Afghan and Pakistani affairs when she was secretary of state. His major point is that under this president, the United States is pulling back from involvement in the world. That, he believes, is weakening us and endangering the growth of democratic governments around the globe. Narrator Stephen Hoye has an authoritative, reportorial, sometimes ominous voice that accurately reflects the author's intent. He's also appropriately snide and sarcastic when Nasr questions Obama's policy choices. While it's difficult to listen for long stretches because he doesn't vary his pitch and tone enough, his diction and pacing are excellent.
